Is there to be a Kickstart event in Scotland this year and, if so, when?


The Scottish Kickstart Conference run by ALDC, ASLDC and the Scottish party in lead up to Scottish Parliament Elections in 2016 and Local Government Elections in 2017 will take place in Perth on Saturday 14th November. Please put this date in your diary now – further details will follow in due course.

CAn someone tell me where to find prices without going right through the booking process?

D'oh! Found the email. £110/£80 sounds a good deal.

Will there be a similar course in the south e.g. London
